insulation cleaning

Hi there,
Does anyone have a suggestion to help get the soot from a roof job off of insulation batts?

My thoughts exactly. If it is unfaced, then I might say it's unpossible (nothing is impossible for an obsessive-compulsive with some tweezers)
If the OP is determined, I might suggest a leaf blower (assuming the soot is not a toxic pollutant). Best yet, put in another layer of insulation and cover it up.

problem may be asbestos content subject to the roofing type. but otherwise in theory: while wearing an osha approved respirator and enclosed safety goggles and a disposable coverall hand protection and foot covering: set up shop vac with hepa filter outdoors. suck thru favorite sized attachment but run the suck hose thru a y connector with adjustable shutoff or partial duct tape on the open y leg, so you can reduce suction to the level needed for the task.

Easy. Lay down plastic sheets on the batts before the roof job. Works really well.
